Outsource Inhalation Development

Outsourcing Inhalation Product Development

Authors: Craig Davies-Cutting and Dean McKinney, Catalent

Until fairly recently, most large, fully integrated pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies preferred to keep all aspects of product development and manufacturing in-house, under direct control of the company. Today, however, it’s estimated that the industry spends nearly 1 dollar in 5 on outsources services, not just small companies but even Big Pharma. The authors, directors of research and business development at Catalent, discuss why companies are looking for product development partners, how the process works, and what to look for in a CRO.
